10 years ago, audiences were given a wacky, optimistic view of the future influenced by author and illustrator William Joyce. That film, Meet the Robinsons, came towards the end of an experimental era at Walt Disney Animation Studios, the first title released under that new branding. Originally recorded in 2013, this escapade features honorary Robinsons Albert “Wilbur” Gutierrez, Pedro “Bud” Hernandez, and Kelvin “Cornelius” Cedeño. Each shares different perspectives towards the film, among them the shift in production under John Lasseter, the rules of time travel, and the various Disneyland connections made. The story’s recurring theme of “Keep moving forward” is also considered, particularly its impact on the audience.
